be sure that the aperture is set to the smallest value (it should be otherwise your camera will show F/EE)

The small lever at the back of the lens will open and close the aperture, try moving this lever and see the aperture opens and closes smoothly

If there is a little dust or something catching this alone may solve the problem but it could be lack of lubrication that cause the blades to stick and this may necessitate sending in for service
